Machiavelli s Lawn

Twelve great authors offer their top tips on gardening, from Sylvia Plath's struggles with autumn bulbs, to Pablo Neruda on pruning roses at the end of a romance. In Brecht's mini opera, a courageous mother's fight to protect her tender young potatoes from the army reveals the tragic consequences of a crop being harvested too soon. On Zola's allotment, a striking miner finds more brutal and perilous than anything he imagined at the coalface. Carver's anti-hero plants up a neglected hanging basket in a doomed attempt to repair his relationship with his wife. And Brett Easton Ellis's brand-obsessed hero, drawn into the garden by the promise of carnage, finds in horticulture the perfect outlet for his demons. Inspired, botanically accurate and utterly hilarious, Machiavelli's Lawn will appeal to green-fingered book lovers everywhere.

Machiavelli Meets Mayor Quimby

(Aired February 18, 1990)”73 Class conflict is a primary theme in the Call ofthe Simpsons episode whose first scene contrasts the chore of mowing a lawn between the lower-middle class and the upper-middle class children.

Machiavelli Meets Mayor Quimby

Since its 1989 independent debut The Simpsons has enjoyed phenomenal success in both domestic markets and internationally, but very little academic notice has been paid to this series and the messages it broadcasts daily now that it is in syndication to its millions of fans worldwide. This book focuses on an analysis of the political messages contained within the episodes of the first season of the series from 1989-1990 with the goal of identifying, analyzing, and understanding the message, or messages related to politics contained within each episode which millions are exposed to each year. Note that this book does not analyze The Simpsons in terms of its Machiavellian content; the title is meant to suggest the rich political undercurrents of The Simpsons, though not necessarily from a Machiavellian perspective.

Absence of Faith

Machiavelli was speeding across the lawn, with Desmon and Damon in close pursuit and Erantxa closing ground behind them. ... It traveled through the air and snared Machiavelli's left leg, while his foot was still in the air.

Absence of Faith

Absence of Faith is a contemporary story based in San Antonio Texas. It is dense with the darkness that lies behind the veil of human thought, and woven with typical uncanny magic, as only stories involving the vampire world can be. The undead characters, Prince Ramses, Zapporoah (his twin sister), Erantxa, and Adonis Duarte are as utterly alive as they could possibly be. They are fiercely ambitious, loyal, sensitive, and loving. Their story is one of mesmerizing beauty, of danger, and flight, of love and loss, of suspense and resolution, and one of extroadinary power of the senses. Betrayed by those he loves most, Ramses, Prince of the undead finds himself embroiled in a deadly struggle for power. During the bloody civil war that ensues he is captured by his enemies and held for ransom, the price ... his crown. Ramses and his remaining loyalists soon realize that in order to survive they must put their faith, trust, and even their very lives in the hands of a mortal. For she may be the only one who can save them.

A successful author and Liberal MP with a loving and benevolent wife, Richard Remington appears to be a man to envy. But underneath his superficial contentment, he is far from happy with either his marriage or the politics of his party. The New Machiavelli describes the disarray into which his life is thrown, when he meets the young and beautiful Isabel Rivers and becomes tormented by desire. At first, he struggles to resist and remain focused upon his familiar political, personal and social life. But as he soon learns, it is harder than he could have imagined to turn his back on love.
